I'm not in Pace

Everyone who works for the Co-operative Bank can join Pace DC. If you’re not paying into Pace DC but you’d like to, you can find out how to join and where to get more information.


I'm in Pace DC

Pace DC is the pension scheme for Bank colleagues. This is the scheme you are in if you have been automatically enrolled.


I have benefits in Pace DC and Pace DB

If you paid into a pension with the Co-op or the Bank before 2015, you might have a pension in the closed defined benefit section, Pace DB. Members who were contributing to Pace DB in 2015, when Pace DB closed, automatically joined Pace DC from that time.


I’m in Pace DB (formerly Pace Complete)

Pace DB is a defined benefit scheme which opened in 2006 and closed in 2015. It no longer has any contributing members – only pensioners and people who’ve left but kept their pension in Pace until they’re ready to take it.


I'm thinking about retirement

Whether you’re about to retire shortly – or just thinking about your options – this area of the website has lots of information to help.


I'm a pensioner or I've left

This section is for people who are already getting a Pace pension or who are waiting to take their Pace pension but they’re no longer paying contributions.
